    One Pot Teriyaki Beef Zoodles

    Teriyaki Beef Zoodles {Zucchini Noodles} is an easy one pan meal perfect for busy weeknights. Made with tender steak, juicy pineapples and spiralized zucchini noodles. It can be made lower carb or gluten free with paleo-friendly options. Takes only 30 minutes to make. It’s an easy meal that comes together in about 30 minutes – perfect for those busy weeknights and a great way to sneak in some extra green.

    The homemade teriyaki sauce is the same one I use for this Teriyaki Chicken and Teriyaki Shrimp recipe and is super simple to make. I am a huge pineapple fan and always love adding it to teriyaki sauce. It gives it that additional layer of tangy sweetness to the teriyaki sauce.

    The zoodles are tossed into the pan near the end for no more than 2 minutes. They soften up slightly with a nice bite. You can also serve the zoodles raw as a salad if you’d like with the beef and pineapples over top. Either way, it’s a fun way to get more oodles of zoodles into your life.

        •  
    8 ounces flank steak sliced against the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices
        •  
    1 tbsp sesame oil
        •  
    Salt and black pepper to taste
        •  
    5-6 medium zucchini cut into noodles using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler (blotting with a paper towel helps to absorb excess moisture)
        •  
    3 tbsps olive oil divided (coconut oil for paleo)
        •  
    1 cup pineapple chunks [fresh frozen or canned (drained) - I used fresh - leave out for lower cal option]
        •  
    Salt black pepper and red chili flakes to taste, optional)

    Optional:

        •   Sesame Seeds
        •  
    Lunch containers for meal prep

    Method

    1. For the sauce: Combine all the ingredients (except for the water) for the sauce into a medium bowl.
    2. In a separate large bowl, combine steak with salt, pepper, sesame oil and drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of sauce over top. Allow to marinate while you spiralize the zucchini noodles.
    3. Spiralize the zucchini into noodles using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler.

    For the zoodles:

    1. Heat 1-2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet on medium high heat until pan starts to get smoky. Add beef and allow to sear and brown on both sides (about 1 minute). Transfer onto a plate.
    2. Return pan to heat. Heat the remaining oil and add pineapples and cook until softened, around 1 minute. Stir in the beef and sauce, and turn heat to high. Allow sauce to bubble and thicken up. Add reserved water (only as needed) little by little, to thin out the sauce.
    3. *If cooking the zucchini noodles, add into pan and use tongs to toss and coat with sauce. Cook for 1-2 minutes until zucchini is just tender but still firm. Be careful not to overcook.
    4. Serve immediately and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
    5. For meal prep - divide evenly into lunch containers. Store in fridge for up to four days.

    NOTES: *Be careful not to overcook zucchini noodles - leave them in the pan no more than 1-2 minutes as they continue to soften once they cook.

    MAKE AHEAD-TIPS for this One Pot Teriyaki Beef Zoodles:

        •   Spiralize the zucchini before hand and store in an zip-top freezer bag in the fridge or the freezer
        •   Cut pineapples and store in the fridge the day before in an airtight container

    Skirt steak salad with arugula and blue cheese

    Love this dish because it reminded me that steak doesn’t have to be a heavy, overly indulgent meal, especially when paired with pretty cherry tomatoes, spicy arugula and a bright vinaigrette. And blue cheese, because to quote one of my favorite commercials of all time, "Is it healthy? Of cause it is; it's a salad, isn't it?"

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound skirt steak, trimmed of excess fat if necessary, halved crosswise, at room temperature
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 pint (2 cups) cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1/2 cup (about 4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
    • 1/2 pound baby arugula
    • Vinaigrette
    • 3 tablespoons minced chives, 2 thinly sliced scallions or 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion, for garnish

    Steakhouse Mustard Vinaigrette

    • 1 tablespoon coarse Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon coarse Dijon mustard
    • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon honey
    • 1/3 cup olive oil

    Method

    1. Pat steak dry and season on both sides 1/2 teaspoon salt and many grinds of black pepper.
    2. In a cast-iron skillet: Heat skillet on medium-high to high and add olive oil. When oil begins to shimmer, place steak in skillet and do not move it for 5 minutes. Turn it once, and cook for another 3 minutes for medium-rare. You may need to cook your steak halves separately, depending on the size of your pan.
    3. On a grill: Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over hot charcoal or high heat for gas. Oil grill rack, then grill steak, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, 4 to 6 minutes total for medium-rare.
    4. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest, loosely covered with foil, for five minutes. Arrange arugula on a large platter. Thinly slice steak on the diagonal, across the grain. Arrange over arugula, then toss halved cherry tomatoes and blue cheese over platter. Add vinaigrette to taste, then sprinkle with chives, scallions or red onion. Serve with additional vinaigrette on the side.
